Our "Assign Activities" page is designed to help you find the perfect writing activities for your students. Learn how to navigate the "Assign Activities" page below:

What's in the "Assign Activities" page?

From the "Assign Activities" tab, you can choose what you'd like to assign your students. You can find diagnostics, which tend to be most helpful with new groups of students, especially when teachers need to assess which skills students need to practice. You can also find independent practice activities, which tend to be most helpful when teachers already know which skills students need to practice.

Assign a diagnostic

If you choose to assess student writing with a diagnostic, you will be able to choose between a Starter, Intermediate, Advanced, ELL Starter Diagnostic, ELL Intermediate Diagnostic, and ELL Advanced Diagnostic, as well as our Pre-AP and AP Writing Surveys, and our SpringBoard Writing Skills survey. Learn more about our diagnostics here.

Create and assign an activity pack

If you want to assign activities in an activity pack, you can peruse our entire Activity Library and create your own activity pack.

Within the Activity Library, you're able to see all of Quill's 800+ activities. From the library, you can filter by Activity Type, Grade Level Range, Readability Level, CCSS Grade Level, ELL Activities, Concepts, Topics, and Content Partners.

Select the activity/activities you would like to assign to your students by checking them off and then pressing the "Assign" button.

Find a featured activity pack

You have the option of browsing featured activity packs with whole-class lessons and independent practice or just browsing featured activity packs for independent practice.

Assign an activity pack

After you've created an activity pack or selected a featured activity pack, you will be able to name your activity pack and select which classes or students you would like to assign the activity pack to. While reviewing the activities that you've selected, you can check to see if you've previously assigned this activity in the Previously assigned column and can also add a Publish date or Due date for the activity pack, which is optional. Pressing the green "Assign pack to classes" button in the top right corner will assign the activity pack to your students, and depending on whether the publish date is immediate or a later date, make the activity pack available on your students' dashboards.

**Please Note: You also have the option to pre-save activity packs to be assigned later. See that guide here.**
